Lyrics
The weather is fright'ning
The thunder and lightning
Seem to be having their way
But as far as I'm concerned
It's a lovely day
The turn in the weather
Will keep us together
So I can honestly say
That as far as I'm concerned
It's a lovely day
And everything's O.K.

Yes, isn't this a lovely day
To be caught in the rain
You were going on your way
Now you've got to remain

Yes, just as you were going
Leaving me all at sea
The clouds broke
They broke and oh
What a break for me

I can see the sun up high
Tho' we're caught in the storm
I can see where you and I
Could be cozy and warm

Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Baby, long as I can be with you
It's a lovely day

Isn't this a lovely day
To be caught in the rain
You were going on your way
Now you've got to remain

Just as you were going
Leaving me all at sea
The clouds broke
They broke and oh
What a break for me

I can see the sun up high
Tho' we're caught in the storm
I can see where you and I
Could be cozy and warm

Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Long as I can be with you
It's a lovely day

I can see the sun up high
Tho' we're caught in the storm
(We're caught in the storm, baby)
I can see where you and I
Could be cozy and warm
(Cozy and warm)

Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Long as I can be with you
It's a lovely day
Long as I can be with you
It's a lovely day
